Christmas markets | GfdS exams 2012 | Interview with Rayemberg Aprigio | Students' Corner
Dear Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

The buildings are brightly lit, strings of colorful lights decorate the trees and it smells like chest­nuts, cinn­amon, spiced wine and roas­ted almonds: It is winter and the best time to visit the Christ­mas markets in Ger­many! Come and discover Christ­mas con­certs, fine handi­crafts, culi­nary speci­alties and Ger­man tra­di­tions! The most beau­tiful Christmas markets can be found here:

Since 1393 the tradition-rich Christmas market has been found in Frankfurt on the marketplace at Römer­berg. In contrast, Berlin offers more than 60 Christmas markets. The most well known Christmas market in Hamburg is in front of the city hall and was designed by the director of the Ron­calli Circus. The Christ­mas mar­ket on the Marien­platz in the heart of Munich is also beaming with pre-Christmas brilliance.

Advent calendar 2011 In order to ease the wait­ing before Christmas, you can open the little door on our advent calendar each day from the 1st to the 24th of December and dis­cover a special surprise.

Every day there is an awesome gift certificate – for example, for a free week of courses, a price re­duc­tion, free course up­grades and much more – but we don’t want to give them all away... Each gift cer­ti­fi­cate un­covered is valid only on that par­ti­cular day. That means, if you want to pro­fit from this offer, keep at it and de­cide quickly!

Interview with
Rayemberg Aprigio

At the be­gin­ning of the year, Ray­em­berg Ap­ri­gio from São Paulo, Bra­zil came to Ger­ma­ny to the did deutsch-ins­ti­tut head­quar­ters to work with cus­tom­ers from the Por­tu­guese spea­king world. One small, but im­por­tant de­tail, when he first came to Ger­many, he could not speak a word of Ger­man! So it was ob­vi­ous that in ad­di­tion to his full-time po­si­tion he would take lan­guage clas­ses at our own ins­ti­tute, the did deutsch-ins­ti­tut Frank­furt – and with a lot of suc­cess! Since then he has reached level C1. Read more
Students' Corner
Why Hamburg?

Adrien from Switzer­land: “I am lea­rning Ger­man be­cause I want to be­come a trans­la­tor. I wan­ted to come to Ham­burg be­cause the city, like Ber­lin, is one of the most im­por­tant ci­ties for hip-hop in Ge­rmany. In add­i­tion, I like the ar­chi­tec­ture in Ham­burg, the buil­dings and the dif­fer­ent neigh­bor­hoods. Most of all, I like the mul­ti­cul­tur­al at­mos­phere here and the friend­li­ness of the Ger­mans. There is so much here to see and do. Oh, and by the way, you must not miss the chicken wings at the Down­under! Read more
